    Call for Workshop Papers

    The Cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT) are unleashing the next wave of innovations due to its inherent capability of connecting everything in physical world into cyberspace from/to everywhere. The realisation of Cloud and IoT does have the massive potential of providing social and economic benefits, however, also requires collaborative and sustained efforts from the Societies of Communications, Computing, and Electronics over the years to come. Many challenging issues need to be tackled quickly and effectively. One significant challenge is the exposed security and privacy concerns since the globally connected devices pose more hidden security and privacy risks. On the other hand, it is very difficult to deploy advanced cryptographic algorithms and protocols due to hardware constraints. To pave the way for a brighter Cloud-IoT future, many technological aspects need to be considered, such as data security, privacy, access control, information assurance, trust management, secure service interoperability, and mobility. This workshop is focusing on exploiting feasible ways of improving privacy, security, and data assurance in Cloud computing, IoT and promoting IoT applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Privacy and security issues in IoT
  • Dynamic trust management for IoT applications
  • Physical-layer security
  • Cyber-physical system
  • SCADA system
  • Trustworthy users interfaces
  • Machine-to-machine communications
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Vulnerability, exploitation tools, Malware, Botnet, DDoS attacks
  • Mobile security, Android security, and trusted devices
  • Security metrics and performance evaluation, traffic analysis techniques
  • Social, economic and policy issues of trust, security and privacy
  • Security on low-power computing devices;
  • Trust establishment in IoT users;
  • Information-theoretic security
  • IoT applications in environmental monitoring, infrastructure management, medical and healthcare systems, transportation systems, and energy systems (such as smart grid)

  • Latest News

    Selected high-quality papers from the workshop will be recommended for submission and possible publication in an SCI-indexed international journal.
